The new contract makes Njoku the fifth-highest paid tight end in the NFL. Not bad work if you can get it. This deal also signals that Njoku is the TE1 in Cleveland and will leaned on as the team adjusts with an essentially new passing group. Cleveland's confidence in Njoku gives his re-draft and dynasty stocks a boost.
According to Tom Pelissero on Twitter, Cleveland Browns tight end Harrison Bryant tested positive for COVID-19 and has been placed on the reserve/COVID list.
Bryant has tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss Week 17. Bryant had some impressive flashes in game action and has impressed the Browns in practice all season. Bryant should see his role grow in year two, and may even cause the Browns to move on from David Njoku this offseason. Bryant finishes the year with 24 receptions for 238 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Austin Hooper should see a few more pass routes with Bryant sidelined and is our TE18 for Week 17.
